Billy Davies has thrown down the gauntlet and challenged the Nottingham Forest board to back him in the January transfer window and aid him in his efforts to win promotion to the Premier League.
With the exception of loan signing Ryan Bertrand and the permanent deal for Radoslaw Majewski, the club have failed to meet the managers requests for additions to the squad in the previous two transfer windows and Billy Davies lays the blame for that, firmly in the hands of the chairman and his much criticised Acquisitions Committee. Marcus Tudgay and Aaron Ramsey joined for their brief loan spells last month, but in short the manager has had little in the way of support from the board.
Davies told Sky Sports News. 'The day I arrived here Mr Doughty's instructions to me were crystal clear: 'Get us out of this division. I'd like to address this to everyone at Forest, from the chairman down. Let's all pull together, settle things down and charge for success. What we do in the next few weeks, on and off the pitch, can make a difference.'
The manager says he's handed in his list of recommendations to the board and will wait and see if they deliver. He wants to put his public criticisms of the club to one side and get everyone working together to achieve the ultimate goal of promotion. Davies has very cleverly and deliberately put the ball firmly in the hands of the chairman and it's up to him now to decide whether or not he backs the best manager we've had in 11 years and the best chance we've ever had of getting back to the Premier League. The question the manager and all Forest fans are asking now, is will the chairman back his manager? It's up to you now Mr. Doughty.
